Remember how I said last week I was having a hard time tracking my food and losing weight? Well, thanks to the package I received from Yoplait Smoothies last week, I'm now headed in the right direction!
About Yoplait Smoothies (information provided by MyBlogSpark):
Including Yoplait Frozen Smoothies in your diet is a quick and easy way to help you get important nutrients, like vitamin C or calcium your body needs. And with seven out of every ten Americans not eating the recommended two to four servings of fruit per day, Yoplait Frozen Smoothies could help you reach that goal.
Each package of Yoplait Frozen Smoothies contains one full serving of fruit (1/2 cup) and 110 to 120 calories per serving. Not only does Yoplait yogurt contain live and active cultures, but when prepared with skim milk and made according to package directions, Yoplait Frozen Smoothies are a good source of calcium. So raise your smoothie glass and toast to a new you!
Found in the frozen fruit aisle of your local grocery store, Yoplait Frozen Smoothies come in four delicious flavors. Be sure to check out the newest flavor, Blueberry Pomegranate, along with other favorites like Triple Berry, Strawberry Banana, and Strawberry Mango Pineapple.
For the purposes of this review, I tried the Strawberry Mango Pineapple flavor. Each package makes two servings, so I shared with Scott and we were both very pleased with the taste. In fact, being the smoothie lovers we are, the next day we had smoothies from a local smoothie shop and I still thought the Yoplait smoothies tasted better!
Yoplait Smoothies are also incredibly easy to make! I don't have a blender, but I do have a Magic Bullet, and was still able to make them without any trouble. I added the smoothie package and one cup of skim milk to the Magic Bullet cup, turned it on, and in just about 60 seconds I had two delicious smoothies ready to drink!
I did notice on the label that this product is sweetened with sucralose, an artificial sweetener. I typically avoid artificial sweeteners (not due to the taste, but for other reasons) but Scott uses Splenda. In spite of sucralose being an ingredient, I wanted to try the smoothies, and I'm glad I did. I didn't notice the artificially sweetened taste like I do in some products, either. It tasted perfectly sweet without any artificial sweetener aftertaste.
Note to my vegetarian friends: If you are abstaining from gelatin as part of your vegetarianism, please be advised that these smoothies do contain gelatin. I don't completely abstain from gelatin (though I do limit my intake), but I know many vegetarians do, so I wanted to put that out there.
The package I received also came with a drawstring bag, a fitness & diet journal, and an aluminum water bottle (pictured below). I have to say, I have already gotten a ton of use from the journal and water bottle. Remember how last week I said I was having trouble tracking my calories? This journal has been a great solution to that. The water bottle is great too - it seals well, doesn't leak and I can take it everywhere to make sure I stay hydrated.
